Before we know it we’ve already made it to the beginning of summer, and the cold days of winter feel like they never even happened. This month we feel a sense of anticipation in the air, as if we are approaching a change that we are not yet conscious of. The energy this May evokes images of the phantasmagoric colors of an aurora: beautiful lights of the extraordinary. The lights tell of new change and of a future beyond the imagination. But from where are they coming from? We see them emanating from Uranus, the planet of radical change, entering into Taurus for the first time in nearly 80 years – in conjunction with Jupiter and Neptune, dyeing our reality with colors of an ethereal quality.

 One may come to hear the voice of their heart – beginning to feel as if they are like a chick hatching from an egg: “I want to break free of these deadlocks,” “I want to change.” In such times, I recommend looking at the image of water and the vivid reflections of all the colors on their surface; use it as a focus in directing your thoughts to one of Taurus’s vital keywords – “values.” This month, take time to think over again about what it is you need, what gives you stability, and about your own value systems – together with picturing what bright future awaits you from here on.

This May, PhotoAstrology brings you forecasts and guidance for this month for each of the 12 signs – as well as images specially selected to aptly reflect the energy surrounding each sign.
